ABSTRACT. A list of 54 bee species of the family Megachilidae with data on their distribution and relative abundance in Kemerovskaya Oblast is presented. Five species, Megachile fulvimana Eversmann, 1852, M. nigriventris Schenck, 1870, Osmia inermis (Zetterstedt, 1838), O. nigriventris (Zetterstedt, 1838) and Pseudoanthidium tenellum (Mocsary, 1881), are recorded for the region first time. Three species, Hoplitis turcestanica (Dalla Torre, 1896), Megachile maacki Radoszkowski, 1874 and Osmia parietina Curtis, 1828 are deleted from the list of species for the region due to doubtful species identification. Currently, knowledge of megachilid bee species composition in Kemerovskaya Oblast is much better than other regions of Siberia.

KEY WORDS: Apiformes, fauna, Kuzbass, Kuznetsk-Salair Region, Western Siberia.
